Carrara Marble Quarries
By the sweat, toil and ingenuity of Carrara quarrymen have squares, palaces and lavish dwellings the world over shone with the bright beauty of this precious marble.
Join us in 4WD off road vehicles and enjoy the charm of places inaccessible to most, travelling along steep, winding roads to witness the complex choreography of people and machines. Mount the steep slopes to meet the quarrymen and witness the cutting and loading of gigantic blocks of marble.
Our guided tours to the marble quarries, sculpture studios and marble workshops will allow you, in absolute safety, to get in touch directly with the people, places, instruments, machinery and daily implementation of ancient knowledge.
For lunch, perhaps enjoy a taste of the truly unique "Lardo di Colonnata", made using two great Tuscan products: the white marble from the Apuan Alps, and pork, the main type of livestock in the region.
